Reviews

It's not often that teen girls are allowed to tell their own stories, particularly in history. But Dunn has created a small window through which readers can experience the fictionalized fates of two young women immortalized in English history. Unpretentious and riveting, The Lady of Misrule puts a human face on one of history's most important footnotes * Paste Magazine * Even knowing how it ends (in tears) doesn't spoil the tension of this superb piece of historical fiction * Kate Saunders, Saga magazine * Poignant and beautifully written * Telegraph * Jane's husband Guildford Dudley is another prisoner and it is his story that unexpectedly proves to be the most poignant element of this beautifully written novel * Charlotte Heathcote, Sunday Express * The narrator is a teenage girl, Elizabeth, a companion to Lady Jane Grey, who awaits her fate in the Tower of London after her failed coup. Elizabeth is a recognisable teenager; infuriating, hormonal and full of contradictions. What Dunn loses by forgoing sham authenticity, she gains in the fizz and wit of Elizabeth's voice. A fresh and enthralling take on a well-known tale * The Times * A wonderful novel, a skilful and moving reimagining of history * Kate Mosse *
